Hey guys,

So I'm pumped, I've reached the threshold of $500 US lifetime earnings on Shutterstock. They sent me an email confirming that I get a raise... subscription images now $0.33 per DL instead of $0.25. Woot! EXCEPT, my very next sale came in at 25 cents. Has anyone experienced this? Is there a delay? Will they fix it? Do I really need to start the long process of contacting them??? (groan). (Still pretty pumped about reaching this milestone! In under a year of uploading... I know its peanuts but hey, I'm happy)

Thanks,
Rachel

I did that thanks... I was hoping to get a quick answer because I didn't find it. If you know, it would be aquick one sentence? I'd appreciate it.

"Please note that it can take anywhere from 24-72 hours for all servers to update with the new earnings level, thus the new rate doesn't go into effect immediately after the threshold is crossed."

Congratulations, I haven't made it there yet, hopefully not too far off! Do you mind me asking how many images you have managed to upload in that time?

Well done to have that many done! I only have 460 on SS and up to 600 on some (the ones that accept everything  ;) ) I need to work harder  :o ;D

Zalee, if you are near $500 with that size portfolio, maybe you're doing better than me! I started by uploading to about 10 sites but now I only do 4... SS, IS, Adobe and Bigstock. Dreamstime was ok but I decided these 4 were the best use of my time.
